Ilang bahagi ng Bicol region binaha at walang kuryente dahil sa epekto ni ‘Bising’

Robie de Guzman   •   April 19, 2021

Baha na sa ilang panig ng Camarines Sur dahil sa walang tigil na pag-ulan bunsod ng bagyong Bising.

Kabilang sa mga binaha ang Himagtocon Lagonoy Spillway kaya hindi ito ngayon madaanan ng lahat ng uri ng sasakyan.

Malakas na ulan rin ang nararanasan ngayon sa Bicol region kaya nagpatupad na ng forced at pre-emptive evacuation sa landslide at flood-prone areas ang mga lokal na pamahalaan.

Sa tala ng Office of the Civil Defense Region 5, aabots sa 27,211 pamilya ang pansamantalang nanunuluyan sa iba’t ibang evacuation centers sa rehiyon.

Paalala naman ng Department of Health sa mga lokal na opisyal na magtalaga ng safety officers na magsasagawa ng clinical at exposure assessment sa lahat ng mga nasa evacuation center upang maiwasan ang pagkalat ng COVID-19 at iba pang uri ng sakit.

Sa Camarines Norte, nawalan ng supply ng kuryente ang ilang lugar dahil sa malalakas na hangin at natumbang mga puno.

Agad namang naalis ang mga punong nakahambalang sa mga kalsada kaya’t maaari pa itong daanan ng mga sasakyan.

May napaulat ding 959 na mga pasaherong naipit sa iba’t ibang pantalan sa Bicol matapos suspindihin ang biyahe ng mga barko.

Hindi rin pinayagang dumaan sa Maharlika Highway sa bayan ng Pilar, Sorsogon ang 87 truck upang maiwasan ang pagdami ng mga truck sa Matnog port.

Sa ngayon ay patuloy pang inaalam ng pamahalaan ng panlalawigan ang pinsala ang bagyong Bising sa rehiyon. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Bryan Baldaraje)

A special task group has been created to investigate the shooting incident that led to the death of Calbayog City Mayor Ronaldo Aquino and his aides in Samar Province on Monday.

The police Special Investigation Task Group (SITG) Aquino will hold its first conference on Tuesday to discuss the case.

Police Regional Office 8 said its investigators are currently gathering more details and testimonies from witnesses and policemen involved in the shooting incident.

Initial investigation showed that Mayor Aquino and his aides were killed after a gunfight with armed men riding another vehicle on Monday afternoon in Barangay Lonoy, Tinambacan District in Calbayog.

The mayor and his aides were aboard their vehicle going to the northern part of Calbayog City when they thought they were being followed by another vehicle.

One of Aquino’s security details allegedly fired at the other vehicle and its passengers retaliated.

The passengers of the other vehicle turned out to be members of the Philippine National Police Integrity Monitoring and Enforcement Group (IMEG) and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Group (PDEG).

Aquino, his driver and a security escort were killed in the incident while another aide was rushed to a hospital.

A police officer was also killed while another was injured. – RRD (with details from Correspondent Syrix Remanes)
